Their fans are pissed. The Bills got rid of their #1 and #2 receivers and now their #2 RB. They are literally tanking the season to rebuild.

Williams will get picked up.

If I was a season ticket holder for that team I would be pissed. I've had to go through rebuilding here several times but they never stripped the team down. Teams are lining up to tank and get in line for this QB class but it is going to be hard to be the worst team when you have the Jets Bills, San Fran, Cleveland, LA Rams all looking like shells of teams. Hell there was speculation a week ago that JWill was looking so good that McCoy could be traded for picks. You know the couple of good players they have left are like WTH!!!

A ton of Hogs were cut this weekend.  Has anyone been picked up elsewhere?  I assume everyone's 53 has to be done sometime today.

Everyone in the NFL was surprised by William's cut. Played great in the pre-season. Was the #2 back for McCoy the whole off-season and pre-season. Fantasy people were talking about how he was a good pickup late in the draft.

Collins is on the Jet's practice squad.

They had to be down to 53 yesterday. Today is a bunch of waiver wire claims and practice squad signings.

So, some teams will sign to their 53 players that didn't make the cut for other teams, meaning they have to boot somebody off of their own current 53 man roster a la BA and JWill. Both of whom have articles of nfl.com front page because those were such surprising cuts to happen today.

Alex Colllins, Jonathan Williams, Knile Davis were all cut this weekend.  McFadden out lasted all of them.

McFadden is still faster than all of them. Two time Doak Walker award winner and runner up for the HEISMAN TWICE. HTF is that even possible?

McFadden probably would have led the NFL in rushing at least once if his OL at Oakland wasn't garbage.

No doubt, was just telling my raider fan son-in-law this to which he agrees. What his career might have been on a average team.

It's just disgusting how much he was misused on a team that really had no meaningful intention of winning.

Jwill will be running on an NFL field for some team this year,  no doubt.

Man, I hope someone picks him up. I really liked his running abilities at Arkansas.

This was not a "He's not cutting it" cut, this was making your team worse to tank cut.

Collins ended up passing on the Jets and joined the Ravens.

DMac should have run from the Raiders when his first contract was up.

Getting paid 550,000 on the practice squad.  Getting paid that amount on the practice squad is unheard of and a cake walk.

Bet he will move up from the practice squad soon .
